Kicker zr240 amp

When sitting still the amp works just fine. But when I start driving the amp will kick off and on. I left my back seat down so I could see the power light on the amp when it cuts off. The light stays on but the sound from the subs quits. I thought it was a lose ground wire but that would kill the power to the amp if that were the case. This happens as soon as I turn it on so its not an overheating issue. Could it possible be the crossover? Any help would be great.

Yup your problem is most likely the solder joints have vibrated loose. dont use it till you resolder all the solder joints on the mosfets and the bigger transistors on the board.

I doubt it is loose solder joints...im sure it is just a bad connction between that junk crossover and the even crappier amp. Try just cleaning the connection points with rubbing alcohol or something and see if that works...if not, try building up the flat male side of the connection with a tiny hint of solder and force it to connect...if that doesnt fix your problem...throw that POS away and buy a real amp!

Hey I have an Alpine CDA-9851 CD Player and was wondering how to hook up my two 10" Kicker subs, since there is no subwoofer connection on the back of the player.


First to start you need an amp something that is a little stronger than your subs. What you want to do is 'T' off your speaker wires into RCA's to hook up into the amp. There is a device you can buy or you can cut some RCA cables. There are a few down sides to do it this way because as you turn up the volume the Subs will get louder and start to distort a lot faster than hooking up proper. The best way to do it is to get a deck with RCA sub outputs. Good Luck

My kicker kx 1200.1 keep clicking to protection mode back and forth when it power. There is a clicking sound comming from the amp...is it a major problem to fix? This just start happening when i was listen...


Look for a frayed speaker wires. Look everywhere. Start where you can see and then look under carpet, under seats, trunk and everywhere wires go throgh a hole in steel frame. Any minor connection between the two speaker wires will cause high-power systems to go into protection mode. Wires can be damaged by long-term vibrations of your car, people stepping on badly placed wires under carpet, moving seats (when adjusted) or even rodents bitting on the wiring. Look closely and you will normally find it. Also look closely where you connect your speaker wires to the amp. One small strand of wire jumping across to another terminal will cause a short and cause protection mode.

I have a Kicker 2500.1 monoblock amp. I am going to run 4 15 inch Kicker L5 subs to this one amp. What ohm subs do I need to purchase? Dual 2 ohm, or dual 4 ohm? Also, how would I wire these subs to pull a...


make sure that you get dual 2 ohm subs. to get a 1 ohm load, wire each sub in a series. that means the positive from one coil, connected to the negative of the opposite coil. then the other two leads will be your active speaker wires. that will give you a 4 ohm load for each sub. once all 4 are wired like this, you simply take all of the positive wires that you have left, and combine them at the amp. do the same with all of the negative wires. that will give you 1 ohm. just be extra careful to make sure every sub is wired exactly the same, otherwise your sound quality will be greatly reduced.
also, 2500 watts isnt as much power as these subs will take if wired together. it will still sound awesome, but I reccommend turning the level on your amp up just until you hear a bit of distortion, then back it off a hair. being slightly underpowered will cause you to have some distortion in your bass. playing distorted notes builds up alot of heat in the voice coils, and these subs are VERY sensitive to overheating.

Sound shuts off, sub still works


That is a common problem with this radio, for it can not go to loud without going down in volume or shutting down.

At high volume sound shuts off, subs still work


You most likely have a shorted or damaged speaker, which is causing the internal amp chip to shut down (but does not affect the preamp outputs). A test you can do is to fade to one speaker at a time and turn it up to se if it shuts down. Repeat with each speaker until you find the one that causes the fault. Then replace it.

MY MONITOR SCREEN DOES NOT COME OUT HELP PLEASE


hi Bips07.
Apparently, this model has an Achilles heel...the ribbon that controls screen extension/retraction. I believe Pioneer extended warranties on this model to 4 years if purchased via a pioneer main dealer or sub contractor. Problems normally occur within 18-24 months from new. I assume your unit is at least 18 months old. Best to contact place of purchase or Pioneer directly.
